Using Gravity Forms ‘gform_is_delayed_pre_process_feed’ PHP filter

The gform_is_delayed_pre_process_feed Gravity Forms PHP filter allows you to delay feed processing for Add-On Framework based add-ons.


add_filter('gform_is_delayed_pre_process_feed', 'your_function_name', 10, 4);

For targeting a specific form, append the form id to the hook name:

add_filter('gform_is_delayed_pre_process_feed_10', 'your_function_name', 10, 4);


  • $is_delayed (boolean) – Indicates if feed processing is delayed.
  • $form (Form Object) – The form currently being processed.
  • $entry (Entry Object) – The entry currently being processed.
  • $slug (string) – The add-on slug, including the gravityforms prefix.
